    The Changan Uni-T wears the “Vision V” design language as reflected on the diamond-shaped borderless front grille and the V-shaped rear spoiler integrated with its extra-large panoramic glass roof.

    Interior

    Inside the cabin are very inviting amenities.

    The new generation technology smart cockpit in the Uni-K has a smart quadruple-screen interactive layout (3+1). The LCD digital instrument cluster comprises three parts: the left section displays tire pressure and door conditions; the middle section shows vehicle speed, augmented reality real-view navigation, multimedia interface and vehicle status; and the right section comprises a digital rear-view mirror, tachometer, and fuel gauge. In addition, the intelligent infotainment screen design with ultra-wide angle, high-resolution and adaptive backlight controls effectively prevent eye fatigue while driving.

    Powertrain

    The recently-introduced models do not come short on power.

    The Changan Uni-T’s 1.5-liter Blue Core turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDi) engine matched to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) can deliver a peak churn of 176 horsepower (hp) and 300Nm of torque. The more powerful Uni-K — equipped with a 2.0-liter Changan Blue Core TGDi mill mated to an eight-speed shift-by-wire automatic transmission — can provide as much as nearly 229hp and 390Nm of torque.

    Changan Uni-T’s power mill offers three drive modes (normal, eco, and sport) while the Uni-K has options for two-wheel drive, automatic, and four-wheel drive (4WD) lock with an all-wheel drive switch button that adjusts the vehicle’s response to effectively navigate various road conditions.

    Technology

    CMPI’s newly-launched vehicles are loaded with technological conveniences to fit the needs of a modern driver.

    The aforementioned models have a voice control function that can open or close windows, operate the radio and the automatic air conditioner, and make or receive calls.

    The Changan Uni models boast a premium Sony sound system—six speakers for Uni-T and 12 speakers with subwoofer for the Uni-K.

    Changan Uni-K

    Changan’s Uni-T offering has the Auto Parking Assist (APA) system that can be activated to automatically complete a rear parking maneuver, hands-free. Meanwhile, Changan Uni-K comes with an electric tailgate with an induction sensor that lets owners open the cargo door hands-free when it senses a foot under the rear bumper.

    Moreover, the Changan Uni models also guarantee safety as they are fitted with advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) that, CMPI noted, can achieve Level 2 autonomous as well as active safety features that include blind spot detection warning that triggers visual and audio alerts for rear side warning, door opening and lateral warnings; lane keep assist; automated emergency braking; integrated adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, and electronic stability control; lane departure warning; front collision warning; rear cross traffic alert, among others.
